According to tweets by Funkmaster Flex, the fight emptied into the parking lot, and gunshots were fired.

Alright, here's what happened: ross & Jeezy got into an actual shoving match in the parking lot. A man w/a gun was arrested. #HipHopAwards
The building was temporarily shut down but is now reopened and Ross took the stage as planned. #HipHopAwards
Not sure where Jeezy is. #HipHopAwards
Shots have been fired. Just heard in the security walkie. We're in lock down again. They've held the Lighty tribute. #HipHopAwards
There is some short of shooting in the parking lot. Gonna go back in the production office. The lighty tribute is beginning. #HipHopAwards
The mood is ok. No one in the actual theater is aware of what's happened. The Lighty tribute is AMAZING. #HipHopAwards
At least one person has been arrested but the lockdown is over. #HipHopAwards

MGK was apparently on the scene too.

Got mase in my eyes. That beef shit just got real outside.

Update #2. DJ Drama gives his first-hand account of what happened. He does not confirm gunshots because he left the show after the altercation backstage to go to his radio program.
